Climb the corner to a large earthy ledge. The continuation corner is quite hard to start; finish by moving left under a small yew to a ledge below a larger tree equipped with an abseil point.

Quite thin but rather good. Well protected.

We thought the big branch used for the lower off worth a second look. It's fairly massive so probably sound enough, but there's no foliage on it (a few buds, though). Time to install a more extended lower off around the main trunk, perhaps?

Short hard section after the ledge. In contrast to many of the other VS climbs hereabouts, this doesn't need any big gear. In particular not two sets of large hexes. Next time...

Getting off the ledge is a challenge. Did manage in the end after a lot of up/down, up/down, up/down, up/down, up!

Superb route. Bit prickly getting onto the ledge and a once there a tad unwilling to leave it behind

First half is a joy. Polished & tricky to get off the halfway ledge - 5a? - tho maybe I'm not used to this style of climbing.... recommended.

hobbitmat - Lead - 10/Jul/11 with Monk

Better than Klute I thought. I laid back on final crack without bridging on the coner, better and harder that way.

Paul Robertson - Lead O/S - 12/Dec/10 with Garron

cunningly little deep pocket is pretty critical on the right hand side of the crux groove - used it for hand, then knee, then foot!

Ev led the route, I seconded, Colin then followed. A good climb, wouldn't have been able to have led it myself though...
